Lucifer Season 2 Comes to DVD, Blu-ray in Split Release

I know a lot of people giggle at the premise — she’s a cop, he’s the Devil, they solve crimes in LA — but Lucifer, starring Tom Ellis, is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. This past season, season 2, increased the family dynamics by adding in his mother, played by Tricia Helfer, to complicate his relationship with Detective Chloe (Lauren German), his angel brother Amenadiel (DB Woodside), his demon friend Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), and his therapist Dr. Linda (Rachael […]

Gotham: The Complete Third Season Comes to Home Video This August

I’ve never watched Gotham, since I prefer the lighter-hearted takes on superheroes, although KC likes it, particularly in large batches, as you get with the season sets. Gotham: The Complete Third Season will be available on Blu-ray (list price $54.97, includes a digital copy) and on DVD (list price $49.99) on August 29. The fight for order and control in Gotham is deadlier than ever with the introduction of cunning, new DC Super-Villains who might alter the future of our […]

Black Lightning Gets a TV Show With a Different Approach

In our Golden Age of superhero movies and TV, there are now plenty of choices for those who like watching live-action comic adaptations. (So many, in fact, that I’ve stopped watching many of them, focusing only on the ones I find most enjoyable: iZombie, Lucifer, Legends of Tomorrow, and soapy guilty pleasure Riverdale.) Most of them have one big thing in common: they’re produced by Greg Berlanti, who helms the interrelated The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends. Berlanti has another […]

DC Super Hero Girls Get TV Series

After two (presumably successful — they were fun to watch, anyway) DVD movies, the DC Super Hero Girls are getting their own animated TV show! Per Deadline, “The action-comedy series from producer Lauren Faust (My Little Pony, The Powerpuff Girls) is set to premiere next year on Cartoon Network.” It will star Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl. The network elaborates on the premise: Gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna, and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, a […]

Defenders Trailer Released, Date Set

Although I still haven’t seen any of the individual character series (and I’d like to see at least the Jessica Jones and Luke Cage ones), this trailer did its job in getting me excited for the upcoming Defenders team-up series on Netflix. How smart is it to have one of your characters be a lawyer? He can get in almost anywhere just by saying that. Iron Fist looks like a weenie, which fits how dumb that casting approach was. The […]

Master of Visual Effects Honored on Comet TV in May

Comet TV has announced its feature schedule for May, and the focus is on Ray Harryhausen, the master of using stop-motion animation to bring to life such imaginative effects as sword-fighting skeletons. There’s a marathon of four films where he created the visual effects on Sunday, May 7, with repeats later in the month. The movies are The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958) The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973) The Three Worlds of Gulliver (1960) Jason and the Argonauts (1963) […]

Superhero Sitcom Dies a Quiet Death

Powerless, the NBC sitcom set in the DC superhero universe, has been pulled from the network schedule. Nine episodes had aired so far, to declining ratings. The remaining three episodes are now unscheduled, even though one of those had a guest appearance by Adam West. No big loss, since the show was pretty bad, but I was actually about to give it another try. Episodes 7 and 8 featured a guest appearance by Green Fury, played by Natalie Morales, whom […]

DC Digital Service Bringing New Season of Young Justice, Titans TV Show

Warner Bros. seems to be jumping into the brave digital future all over the place with their Warner Bros. Digital Networks Group. The Warner Archive website, which used to sell made-on-demand DVDs, is now home to a streaming service for classic movies and TV. HBO Now delivers the premium cable service directly to customers. They’ve turned their cartoon channel Boomerang into a subscription service. (If only they’d do the same thing for TCM, but that’s probably too close to the […]
